Welcome to my blog! I am a freelance writer, actress, and singer based in Oxford. The city of dreaming spires, academic excellence, and house prices that require a stiff drink to stomach.
I first started blogging to help my profile as a writer and actor, but I never felt like writing about work no matter what play I was in or what exciting career developments occurred. I realized that I was passionate about writing from the heart and only the heart.
Living a somewhat unconventional life and often one to challenge the social ‘rules’, I have felt the sting of judgment from others and also from myself; from self-esteem and body-image challenges, to unwanted societal labels and being held back by fear of failure.
Having always rooted for the underdog (and oft been fairly vocal about that) only now in my mid-thirties have I finally started to be kinder to myself and giving ‘me’ as much support as I would someone else. It’s a journey and I definitely have a way to go, but it’s one I want to share with anyone who has ever doubted themselves, felt judged, or is open to expanding their perception of who they ‘should’ be. Because people are people. No labels required.
